About Gender Equality Funds
We're here to help you invest your values
Investing in gender equality
You don't have to be a financial expert to practice gender-lens investing.
Sustainable and responsible investing made easy

Gender Equality Funds is a search platform that enables you to find out if your money, in the form of individual mutual fund investments or an employer-provided 401(k), is invested in companies leading on gender diversity and equality. You can find socially responsible options that prioritize companies with an equal gender balance and strong policies promoting gender equality.

You can help build a more equal world by investing in companies that offer women success in the workplace, without sacrificing returns. A growing body of research correlates various gender-lens investing criteria with higher financial performance and lower investment risk.

Who we are

For more than two decades, As You Sow has been promoting responsible investing. As part of our Invest Your Values program, we've created a series of platforms that provide free analysis and information to help people avoid investments in fossil fuels, weapons, tobacco, and other morally questionable products and business practices.

To build Gender Equality Funds, As You Sow partnered with Equileap, a women-led social venture working to accelerate progress towards gender equality as a vital lever in reducing poverty and inequality.
